Manhattan density doesn't work on a Texas
scale, and certainly not in much of Texas
geography. You might as well calculate that
the average person occupies a volume about
two cubic feet, and say the entire earth's
population would fit into a cube not all that
big. Dehydrated, they would fit into an even
smaller mauseleum.

I like dense neighborhoods. I live in one of
densest neighborhoods in Texas. Density
brings many advantages. But density
everywhere doesn't work.
